Harvey Mudd Grad Coaches Mindful Learning in All Subjects

I love physics! Before you read on, I encourage you to go watch an episode of PBS Space Time so that you can fall in love a little bit, too. Physics can be tough, though, and that's why I've developed a systematic problem-solving approach that will get you through any AP Physics problem. Want the secrets now? Here you go: Know column, Want column, Equations, Variable check, Define directions, Draw a picture. And make sure you write down your units :) Kathryn is a professional private tutor who spends her life helping students understand tough concepts in math, science, English, and critical r [more]

Working scientist, PhD, nuclear physicist, vast experience

I've been teaching or tutoring for over twenty years in some form or another. For me the reward from tutoring is when I see that a student has caught onto an idea, when the light bulb goes on. In my career I've not only studied physics, mathematics and statistics, but applied them as well as time management and study skills. I can help a student succeed in all these areas. My career has included a PhD in Nuclear Physics, postdoctoral work in nuclear astrophysics and over twenty years of e... [more]

Master the fundamentals and the rest will come naturally

I received a 5 on the AP Physics C exam and a 790 on the Physics SAT subject test. In high school I served as an academic tutor for the AP Physics class. I chose to get my undergraduate degree in Engineering Physics because it was the only engineering major that required quantum mechanics. I also chose took the Honors track for physics at UC Berkeley. I am recent graduate of UC Berkeley's College of Engineering. While in school I studied a variety of disciplines including mechanical and electrical engineering, materials science, and computer science. But I wasn't just interested in gaining tho [more]

Berkeley Computational Neuroscience PhD Student (CS, Phys, Chem, Math)

I have tutored many students in AP physics over the past seven years. In addition to this direct experience, my day-to-day use of math in computational neuroscience (a favorite field of "refugee physicists") keeps me fresh in the requisite mathematical skills. I can help with any physics class up through a first-year calculus-based college course. Hello prospective student! I'm a 30-year-old PhD candidate in computational neuroscience at UC Berkeley. My other credentials include a BA in chemistry from Northwestern University, a Certificate of Language Teaching to Adults (CELTA) from Internatio [more]

Retired NASA research scientist

I graduated with an undergraduate degree in Physics from Cornell University and a PH.D. in Physics from Syracuse University. Following this I taught for two years at Drexel University in Philadelphia PA. I then had the opportunity to join the NASA Ames Research Center in Mountain View California. At Ames I pursued a rich and rewarding research career spanning 40 years in planetary studies and Earth's atmosphere studies. I played a significant role in explaining the Antarctic Ozone hole in the... [more]

Biomedical Engineer (UC Berkeley PhD) for Math and Science Tutoring

In high school I was an AP Physics student and my excellent performance on the AP exam earned me College Physics credit when I started pursuing my BS degree in Biomedical Engineering. I did take courses with a heavy advanced Physics content later on as part of other requirements for my BS degree. As an undergraduate student I did laboratory research that required application of several Physics concepts. My work culminated in a peer-reviewed publication shedding light on how cells in blood vessels operate. As a graduate student at UC Berkeley, I was a graduate student instructor at the Physics [more]
